A fine French violin bow by Dominique Peccatte, c.1850. Price on enquiry.
Dominique Peccatte (1810-1874) was an apprentice and then colleague of the famous luthier Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume. He is considered to be one of the most influential bow makers and is noted for adapting Tourte's hatchet-style head. Most of his bows are not stamped, although his early bows carry the mark, VUILLAUME A PARIS and some later bows are stamped PECCATTE.
